Joint, Tendons, Ligaments and Sports Injuries
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is the transcutaneous application of high-energy acoustic waves to promote healing and repair. Focused ESWT involves the application of acoustic waves transmitted in a narrow or focused pattern. First used in the early 1980s, this type of ESWT emerged as a noninvasive treatment known as lithotripsy to break-up kidney stones.

  • Shoulder tendinopathy
